Eyewitness Shares Scary Account of Anne Heche's Serious Car Accident

Anne Heche is recovering in the hospital from a fiery car accident, and now, neighbors who witnessed the crash are describing what happened.

The 53-year-old actress, who suffered burns from the accident and is currently intubated, was driving in the neighborhood of Mar Vista when the crash happened, and neighbors are describing the scene.

Lynne Bernstein, who lived nearby, recalled how he and his fellow neighbors, Dave and Gabriel, spoke to the star moments after she crashed into the residence.

The car drove “almost all the way through” the house and “almost immediately” caught fire, as Dave was able to get into the back of the car and speak to Anne.

“She responded that she wasn’t doing real well,” Lynne said.

“He actually talked to her briefly. Yeah, he asked her to raise her hand or something…if she was okay and she said she couldn’t.”

He also remarked that if they could free her from the car before the fire department came, “maybe she wouldn’t be suffering the way she is now.”

“We were having a hard time seeing and breathing,” he says of the smoke that filled the house, pointing out that Gabriel began hosing down the fire as Dave tried to get her out from the car.

“He [was] overcome by the smoke. So, he went to the back of the house to see if there was an alternative route, maybe we could get to her from the front of the vehicle. But the smoke, even on the backyard was pretty darn intense.”

He also said the resident of the home that Anne crashed into “was in shock…I don’t think she got what was going on. She said, ‘What happened? What happened?’”

“She was extremely fortunate. So were the dogs and her turtle.”

He said of Anne‘s condition: “We were just looking inside, going ‘How could you survive that?’ Because we had a hard time breathing even outside of the house. So, somebody was watching out over her, I guess. I mean, as seriously injured she may be.”

A rep for Anne Heche is speaking out following the car crash that left her hospitalized.
